The Weekly Wrap 2023 – Term 3 Week 6 – 2023

Last Friday Craigburn came alive with students and staff enthusiastically participating in our annual Book Week Dress Up Day parade. A big thank you to families who supported their child/ren with some very creative costumes. We also extend our gratitude to the families who were able to attend on the day and support the parade.

A special mention to Lucy and Jack for their exceptional role as comperes – their efforts added an extra layer of excellence to the parade.

SSO Appreciation Week 

This week, we take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the invaluable presence of our School Service Officers (SSOs) and the positive impact they have on the lives of students, teachers and families.

We extend our gratitude for the work our SSOs undertake across all aspects of school life, ranging from administrative tasks and financial matters to maintaining our library and ICT networks, nurturing student well-being, tending to the school garden and  grounds, and providing essential learning support.

Thank you to – Clare, Bron, Sam, Julianne, Jane, Travis, Emily, John, Chelsea, Krysten, Hannah, Gemma, Tyson, Sam, Catherine and Linda. We hope you enjoy the week.
